Storyline

Having solved the riddles put before them, Col. Mitchell manages to pull the sword from the stone and must fight a holographic knight in shining armor and with that - once they make amends for Vala's light fingers - the treasure appears. Daniel finds new information about the Ancients who have also been known as Alterans, Ancients who may not have ascended. Using the Ancients communications stones, Daniel and Vala find their consciousness transported across the universe where they occupy the bodies of a man and woman living in a medieval society. The locals worship the Ori, a religious cult that now learns of human existence. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

We see Vala completely engulfed by flames, head to toe, for several seconds. In the next shot, Daniel caresses her mane of raven hair (which barely looks like it has split ends, let alone frizzy or, as would be the case, burnt off). See more »

On My Top 10 List For Best Episodes
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is by far one the best I have seen. From start to finish this episode had me glued to the tube, as some would say. With the comic bickering between Daniel and Vala to the dramatic, heart racing ending - it left behind quite a cliffhanger and jaw dropping ending for me. But with this season out on DVD you don't have to wait a week to find out what happens if you own it. Well you could...why would you do that? In my eye, it brought Jackson's and Vala's character to a whole new level. This episode is a must watch for a Stargate fan or even if you don't really watch the show you'll still appreciate how the story unfolds. An excellent start for the season!
